    CB900F Caliper rebuild kits

    Hi all,

    Looking to rebuild the front calipers on my 05 CB900. Got a slight brake drag going on.

    Probably going to go OEM but that's always expensive.

    Does anyone know anything about "All Balls Racing"? Seems they do mostly bearings and seal kits with mixed reviews online.
    Part # 18-3175

    I rebuilt the front calipers on my GSX-R 750 K9 with OEM and that was over $300 for just a bunch of O rings.

    cheers

    thanks for the links. I usually go through Partzilla.com but having more options is always good.


    Anyone know anything about All Balls Performance? Can't say I like that name haha

    There stuff is just ok. I have had trouble with them on worn stauntions where better quality ones have worked fine.

    Gets what you pay for.

    They started off selling Chinese made bearings and now sell all sorts of spares.

    There is so much dodgy aftermarket stuff out there, especially on eBay, that OE parts are definitely worth considering. I recently bought float valve needles for the R1 and they were cheaper from Partzilla than the aftermarket stuff sold locally.

    I'd kit the mastercylinder first...Drag/not returning brakes will more often be the m/c.

    just rang TSS Redbaron, $70 for a rebuild kit.

    I'll check out the MC rebuild as well. Bikes done 125,000 km so everything's getting a bit tired. Thinking I'll go with OEM of MC rebuild given how critical it is.

    I'd do the same.
